I'm planning on showing a mule in my horse show.... I know odds are I'll be made fun of, but will the judges be biased? What do you think, will I do worse just because my ride has long ears, a spikey mane and a short tail?? And brays like a donkey?
Unfortunately, I think they might - but it could work either way - they could love him too!
I say go for it!! I would! How fun would that be? (Who cares if some people might poke fun? Go into it with a good attitude and roll with the punches, and make fun right back ;) )
Depends on what you do. I believe mules aren't allowed to enter a USEF affilated show at all. (Not sure what you're planning on showing). I heard they made that rule because a mule was beating all of the fancy big jumpers :)
